Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses.

1 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: I get no aid and pay full tuition. This school is expensive, however, I decided to attend UCSB because it is the top public chemical engineering school in the nation.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I'm glad to have gone and I'm glad to move on.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Again, it's only Gen Ed stuff so it's pretty straight forward.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: They cut back a lot of classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It's great to transfer from.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: It's a community college so I don't expect much anyway.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: It's a great school to do your general education.

2 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: The counselors at the school all told me a bunch of different things. They could do better with helping students to transfer.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: It's not for everyone. I personally just don't enjoy online classes.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The $ per unit has been increasing, which isn't pleasant due to the fact that all classes are impacted and to graduate or transfer in time, you kind of have to take "filler" classes, so you're basically paying for classes you don't need or that benefit you.

3 College Junior

Student Body: A lot of white males in the kinesiology department. More males than females, however many middle easterns and asians during Spring, I noticed.

3 College Junior

Career Services: No experience with the job aspect, careers aren't really focused on.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It was cheaper than going straight to a four-year, and its a good transition from high school to "college"

3 College Junior

Facilities: Nothing really goes on. Students are just that, students who show up to class and then go home.

1 College Junior

Online Courses: Hated all my online courses, because the work load was too much. Also, you couldn't just ask a fellow student next to you to clarify, and discussions seemed fake. First month of my online class was me talking about myself. Such a waste of time.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Although I felt clubs weren't very popular despite the club rushes, the tutoring and resource centers were very helpful for struggling students who did not have the time and money to find a professional tutor.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Wonderful, except the internet was always very slow when used on a mobile device, however using the computer on campus was always helpful and fast to get online classes and last minute papers done.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Not a lot of programs offered for Nutrition and Food Science, however related areas such as biology and chemistry were offered in surplus.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: class registration was always the worst part only because it was a first come first serve basis and so you are stuck taking classes that you do not really need. Although, the resources for help and tutoring was abundant so that helped with finals week and study load.

5 College Student

Academic Experience: I love the teacher's knowledge and experience in teaching the subjects. They have many classes available and workshops which provide extra teaching of each subject.

5 College Student

Academic Experience: Awesome programs like our Exotic Animal Training program offered for student interested in exotic animals.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The teacher sets the plan. You follow it. Not much room for compromise here.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: The very best online courses and they are super cheap. Totally one of the best things this school has to offer.

A sense of regret swells up inside some Moorpark students as they realize they’re now one of "them"—not an entering freshman at a four-year school like their friends, but a measly community college student. However, things soon begin to change. As two years go by, students eventually find themselves strolling off campus for the final time. With acceptance letters from UCLA and Berkeley, many Moorpark students shed their despair and, instead, are near tears as they realize what an amazing opportunity Moorpark was. This place has a certain charm. It grows on you, and it can be the catalyst for making dreams come true—if you let it.

The University of California system gives preference to California community college students in transfer admission, giving Moorpark students a relatively easy avenue to attain a world-class education. Because of this, many Moorpark students are willing to put up with lackluster classmates, a lacking social atmosphere, and the stigma attached to the school. In reality, Moorpark is nothing to be ashamed of. Rather, it is a wonderful school that offers students everything they could ever need to further themselves academically, including inspirational and personable professors, various course offerings, stress-relieving aesthetics, and a fantastic library. However, even with all of these perks, Moorpark requires individual effort and diligence; students must find the ambition within themselves in order to thrive. Otherwise, students can get sucked down into a hole that begins with dozing off during lectures and ends with DeVry. Moorpark provides you with the blocks, but you must do the building.
